Merry: Where are we going?
Aragorn: Into the wild.
Merry: (To Frodo.) How do we know this "Strider" really is a friend of Gandalf?
Frodo: If he was evil, he would look fairer and feel fouler.
Merry: He's foul enough!
Frodo: We are left no choice. We trust him.
Sam: Where are we going?
Aragorn: To Ruffendell.
Sam: You were right, Mr. Frodo! We are going to see the elves!
